Hello everyone! I am an optometrist who is very myopic (nearsighted) and have been wearing glasses and contact lenses since I was 8 years old. Due to the nature of my prescription, I was advised that I would have better visual outcome with Visian ICL. 1 day after my surgery, I was seeing 20/20; 1 week after, I was even seeing 20/15! I never was able to see 20/15 ever before, even with the most up-to-date contact lens prescription. Not only is the vision spectacular, I do not experience anymore dry eyes. Prior to my surgery, I had severe dry eyes, due to prolong contact lens use, and was dependent using eye drops everyday. Since I feel very comfortable with my eyes now, I don’t feel the need to have artificial tears with me at all times! Thanks Dr. D! Not only is Dr. D a great surgeon, he is also a great doctor! He cares for every patient as a whole. I highly recommend refractive surgery with Dr. D, especially if one is considering Visian ICL!
